- Full Report:
A comparative analysis was made of life insurance and other death benefit programs available to Federal employees and retirees with similar programs in the non-Federal sector.
Death benefits for Federal Employees are available from several sources, including the Federal Employees' Group Life Insurance Program, various retirement programs, and workers' compensation. As a package, these are generally comparable with benefits provided by larger non-Federal employers; however, benefits are less for younger employees and retirees over age 65. Federal employees also pay more for their benefits than do their non-Federal counterparts.
